Salon Report: Univers Kaizen Salon Hair Color

It has been weeks since I last colored my hair and I just had the chance to write about it!

First of all, I want to thank the wonderful people of Univers Kaizen Salon. It was a lovely experience and I enjoyed how they treated my hair like a separate individual! Ms. Mary Ann Orca consulted me first on what color I prefer. I told her I am into "natural" NOT "Hey! I dyed my hair"look"! She patiently explained to me that Matrix ColorPro Copper Brown would work well on my skintone, I'm glad I listened.

The salon offers Hair Color using Matrix products. Ms. Mary Ann colored the regrowth first, left it for approximately 15 minutes, then went on to color the scalp. I found myself looking freaked out! Who wouldn't if you look like this?

(sorry for the blurry photos,
I forgot to bring my camera)

After approximately half an hour of coloring my regrowth and scalp area. They proceeded with coloring the rest of my hair! And I got a wonderful back massage and tea! I don't mind staying there for more than an hour! Wonderful ambiance, magazines to read (I actually learned so much about showbiz gossip as I was reading the entertainment magazines), hair wash with Biolage treatment that left my scalp minty fresh, relaxed back and....

Wonderful looking hair! :D What more can I ask for? It's a big plus that their staffs put on a smile every time you talk to them! I was even asked if I'm bored! Even if I am, I can always do a song and dance number, they don't have to worry about me! :P

Here's how my hair looks like with and without flash! I love it that the hair color changes depending on lighting! :)

Price of full hair coloring varies depending on the length of your hair and how many tones. I had a one tone treatment for the length of my hair, costs around Php2,000++ (approx $42.00).

I had a reader once asked me about brow coloring! I learned that Univers Kaizen Salon also does brow coloring service, no, they don't use the hair dye but they use a special dye for the brows for only Php 200 (approx $4.00). The Eyebrow Color lasts approximately 3 months.

  18. I love the color,looks nice for your skin :) I used to dye my hair so much so I don't do it anymore now :) but when I go to pamper myself I have a nice creambath or hairspa plus head n back massage, followed by spa treatment if I have enough time :D hmm I miss pampering myself

  19. Mrs.Zeus, I'm glad you like it! I love it too thank goodness my first Professional coloring experience is great!

    Paula, girl! I just don't get it why F salon charges so much, isn't it supposed to be "them" being there because they charge cheaper? Medyo over pricing nga..and your hair is shorter than mine! Well at least we learn our lessons! :)

    Shen, sis, I seriously LOVE the color on you! come to think of it, virgin hair ka nga! I didn't know that til I read your post! :) I'm glad you had a wonderful experience girl! Miss you too!
